Admissions Requirements

For students entering as first-year students, a high school transcript is required for admission review.

For students entering as transfer students, high school and/or college transcripts are required for admission review.

Test Scores

JWU is test optional but students are encouraged to submit SAT or ACT scores. The SAT or ACT is required for home-schooled students. If SAT/ACT scores cannot be obtained, please contact Admissions for a formal, academically focused admission interview with an admissions staff member in person, over the phone or virtually (i.e., Zoom).

Minimum Grade Requirements

Conditional Acceptance includes academic support structures such as advising and supplemental instruction. Satisfactory academic progress must be maintained.

In general, JWU seeks a minimum grade average of C+ for admission. A lower grade average and curriculum level require a more intensive review of the total application package.

There are certain majors that may have grade point average, course, academic or other requirements. For further information, please contact the Admissions office.

Program Requirements

Certain programs of study include technical standards as part of academic requirements essential to the program. Students with disabilities should contact Accessibility Services/ACE Center for information regarding the feasibility of reasonable accommodations and the technical standards. See Technical Standards for descriptions of the applicable technical standards. Copies of the technical standards applicable to various programs are also available from Accessibility Services/ACE Center.
